The Scientific Board

Supervision, precision, recognition and follow-up.

What is it for?

The scientific board provides several guarantees as to the quality of the courses you will follow.

Support and Development

The Scientific Council assists the pedagogical teams, it promotes consultation between instructors, coordination between the different poles, it advises and guides the structure’s pedagogical project. It guides the reflection of the operational members, it proposes new areas of development and ensures the improvement of services. In order to accompany the structure towards irreproachable teaching, it may be required to set up a quality control of the services provided.

Follow-up and Guarantees

The board meets several times a year. It provides scientific support to the platform’s activities and regularly issues opinions on pedagogical orientations, work or learning path projects. It guarantees the autonomy of the work carried out and promotes the NEED in university circles. It suggests avenues for improvement.

Recognition and Experience

The Scientific Board is composed of experienced and recognized academics in the field of Humanities research related to the professional environment and French as a foreign language (literature, languages, history, geography, philosophy, sociology, economics, demography, occupational health and safety, political science, human resources management, public policy evaluation).
